Modern solutions that help farmers improve their agricultural operations by reducing risks, saving crops and saving time and money, are increasingly being sought by Romanian agricultural producers. TMC EcoAgriculture provides services to farmers with herbicides and other treatments on farmland, orchards or vineyards using modern drones that, thanks to high-tech functions, can “diagnose” problems with diseases or pests in the crop and implement technologies accordingly. The book, for simple spraying when dispersing nitrogen or other granular inputs.
TMC EcoAgiculture Company It provides farmers from all over Romania with useful diagnostic services and treatments for agricultural crops with the help of the latest drones. Marius Tato, director of the company, explained Agrointelligence-AGROINTEL.ROhow can farmers contact the company’s services, but also what are the advantages of using drones for seasonal treatments and what are the visible effects on production per hectare.
“We apply the latest technology by providing services to the farmers. More precisely, the field spraying branch, i.e. includes herbicides, insecticide treatments for pests, and all kinds of other foliar treatments. So it is all about spraying in the field or spreading granules. All the traditional machine does but With lower costs in the case of the drone, and significant differences compared to conventional herbicides,” explained TMC EcoAgiculture Director.
Revolutionary technology – directly in the fields of Romanian farmers
One of the drones used in field treatment, DJI Agras T30, is a revolutionary tool that actively supports reducing fertilizer consumption and increasing productivity. With a speed of 10 hectares per hour, uniformly assisted spraying and a 360-degree radar system, the DJI Agras T30 takes the idea of efficiency in spraying plants and fruit trees to the next level.
Based on accurate data and numbers, the DJI Agras T30 drone independently plans and tracks the best path for each type of operation. The liquid indicator conveys the amount remaining and the estimated time to refill in real time, allowing operators to achieve the perfect balance between payload and battery life.
“The drone, the latest version of its generation, emits from the air much more efficiently than a machine that weeds by conventional methods on the ground. This, first of all, does not consume much water compared to an agricultural machine, we are talking about 20 times less water in the case of drones, which means the farmer no longer has to pour huge amounts of water into a field.In addition, we also have the option of plant analysis, with another drone that assesses the health of the crop and can tell us in time Actual on the soil, I give an example: on an area of \u200b\u200b20-30 hectares it can be determined where we have a problem with culture, the drone analyzes it, a scale that gives a “diagnosis.” So the grower is no longer forced, as in the traditional case, to process the entire crop, but only In the plots of land, where the problem is,” as Marius Tato identified.
What is different from traditional weed control?
Marius Tato mentioned several advantages of using drones for specific treatments of agricultural or fruit crops. And so, with the DJI Agras T30 drone:
- Significantly reduces the workload and replacement of people in the field from 3 to 1 person;
- improves culture and provides greater efficiency: by low spraying, drones help to form a microclimate – the leaf is attacked at the top and bottom;
- Provides a good increase in production by eliminating the stability of crops – for a crop of 1000 hectares, up to 50 hectares (5% of the total area) is lost annually due to technological impacts
- Water saving: 10 liters / ha for 200 liters / ha, traditionally you adjust the size of the drop and no longer need to transfer water to the field;
- It gives farmers the opportunity to make data-driven decisions while controlling the entire process;
- Farmers benefit from efficient, uniform and personalized spraying;
- Ensures accuracy: accurate application of solutions, maintaining a constant distance over plants, even on slopes where agricultural machinery is difficult to reach;
- do not expose workers to chemicals;
- Treatments can be applied even in weather conditions that are difficult for agricultural machinery to reach;
What kind of farmers can request services for field treatments
TMC EcoAg company services deal
“Farmers contact us and we go anywhere in the country to provide these services. The business is to provide services, but if the farmers want, we can also sell this equipment for farming. We deal with all the farmers but it is likely to be cost effective for medium sized farms etc. Above In general, younger farmers understand exactly the process, but also farmers who have taken a more traditional approach so far are beginning to use the latest services that guarantee speed in treatment, accuracy, economy and, above all, efficiency. I would also like to mention among the advantages the reduction of losses to a minimum, whether those caused by technological impacts, machinery stuck in the field, or waste of materials in places where they are not needed,” identified TMC EcoAgiculture official.
He added, in addition, the farmer saves time: the drones work for them at night, fly at a low altitude, slowly and without disturbances, while optimizing the doses of substances.
“You do not depend on the available workforce, it is only necessary for the farmer to show us where the culture is and make the inputs available to us. In addition, our fuel consumption is zero, so this is another negative cost to the farmers,” emphasized Marius Tato.
